Gugu Ncube is expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate Court on Thursday, after staging a nude protest at Unisa on Wednesday.

Ncube said she was protesting naked because “nudity is a sign of my dignity that l have been stripped of”.

This refers to allegations that she was “unlawfully manhandled” at Unisa for reporting her boss to the university. She alleged that her boss was asking for sexual favours in exchange for her job.

Ncube donned black underwear and a red top, holding a placard in front of her, when she was arrested.

Unisa said the matter was between her and Unisa Centre for Early Childhood Education (UCECE), an external company that was previously sponsored by Unisa.

The university further said it followed due processes regarding Ncube’s sexual harassment complaint in 2018, and suspended its staff members who were accused of the crime. The accused were board members at UCECE at the time.
